-- Table of Poems from Poem Finder®

Here is a poet capable of teaching the curious how to read what some would still call avant-garde poetry. These poems are snips and snaps of contemporary life run together with a taut gathering stitch and played off against particular moments and figures in the history of ideas, literature, and politics. This dexterous and often humorous interplay creates moments of surprise, as in "Why There Is A Cat Curfew In Our House." The poem, an energetic narrative about a family of raccoons coming in through the cat door late at night, ends with a wry nod to the desire for more: "& if I were a Victorian poet there'd be a moral/but late in my century all I can say/is that she did of course remind me of my mother." Notes at the back help unlock the references for those who are not content to just go along for the ride.

Hollo's poems are evocative and hard-hitting, blending humor and candid observation in a collection which will appeal to many with its familiar images: "A town dedicated to the pursuit/of fitness & inner peace/says the headline so that's where we are/that's why they're building/fifty new houses/right next door. -- Midwest Book Review
